Change the android actionbar title and icon

This is very simple to accomplish

If you want to change it in code, call:

setTitle("My new title");

And set the values to whatever you please.

Or, in the Android manifest XML file:

<activity android:name=".MyActivity" 
       android:label="My new title" />

To enable the back button in your app use:


The code should all be placed in your onCreate so that the label/icon changing is transparent to the user, but in reality it can be called anywhere during the activity’s lifecycle.
